Headed out to Seattle for a feast with kids & grands; 15 mo, 6 & 12yr.
Was asked to bring garlic mash potatoes & the famous pumpkin torte.
Had to make practically a blood covenant with one of my best friends to never share the recipe.
Anyway I had a couple questions about it & called her but she wasn't home.
Get to the store & there she is!
"No no, don't get the generic graham crackers."
"What about the cream cheese? The ingredients are the same."
"Yeah but it doesn't cook up as well as Philedelphia."

Had a great time & Im plumb stuffed.
Moka do I ever know what you mean! My friend almost literally grew up in Chinese resturants. She knows what works & what doesn't.
One time I brought a cake somewhere & gave out the recipe on request.
"Mine didn't turn out as good as yours."
"Well. Did you use butter?"

Yes, it's pretty amazing how something as seemingly small as butter vs margarine or a brand name vs generic can make such a huge difference in some recipes! I'm glad you had a good time! :-D
